Final Cut Studio 2

Moving on stills, sometimes called the “Ken Burns Effect,” is the technique of zooming, rotating, and panning across still photographs. It is an important real-world post-production skill, especially for history and science documentaries. In Final Cut Studio 2: Moving on Stills, Larry Jordan demonstrates how to create movement using Final Cut Pro 6 and Motion 3. He also explores image preparation in Photoshop, and shows how to create these techniques using other applications, like MovingPicture. Those with previous experience in Final Cut Pro and Motion will benefit most from this instruction. Example files accompany the course.
